We have stayed at The Rhett House Inn several times over the years and continue to love its charm, elegance and grace without the fussiness. The staff is very accommodating and friendly, can't beat the location and is family friendly.

Room Tip: Room 3 is on the top floor and is very spacious although tends to get a bit warm. The lower level ro...

Best B&B we have seen in a very long time. The kind of place you hope in pours rain all day so you can curl up guilt free with the Sunday paper and a good book and just stay in the room. Simple and delicious breakfast only surpassed by the service of all the staff. We look forward to returning soon.

This is a lovely place and the staff is very accommodating. The breakfast was excellent. The location is just one block from the water which is where the action is. Only drawback was the AC did not work very well, but the room was comfortable enough. Great town and recommend at trip to Hunters Island State Park while you are there.

Thank you for your review. We apologize that the air was not working properly and are glad you enjoyed your stay. You are right Hunting Island State Park is not to be missed. We are glad you had the opportunity to visit.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and will likely return again in the fall.
The room was nicely appointed and we loved the veranda for sitting in the evening.
People were nice and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch sipping fresh lemonade.
The treats, from cookies and tea during the day to hors oeuvres in late afternoon were a special treat. Only wish we had saved room for the home made pies at night, the pecan pie and chocolate cake looked sinfully good.
Only 2 mild complaints were the room (#2) door had a 2 inch gap at the top because the old house has settled some so we had to put a towel in to block the hallway light and noise at night. Also the air conditioning only had one setting....brr cold.....never thought we'd be thankful for South Carolina quilts in July but provided a welcome comfortable sleep.
Great history, warm and welcoming people, great locatio, quintessential southern hospitality.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Top Floor with Veranda to sit outside or lounge in the hammock.

Old and not really worth the cost. Have stayed in many B&B and this is just the same old thing. The breakfast was good....but a wonderful home style breakfast buffet would have mean more enjoyable. The room was also, just so -so. Squeaky bed, no triple sheeting, THIN blanket....fireplace did not work. Nothing I would repeat. Sorry.

If you enjoy old southern homes, you'll love your stay at the Rhett House Inn. While old, it's scrupulously clean and all the little extra ammenities make this place a little gem. Loved the champagne welcome and the desserts in the evening.

The Rhett House Inn was a private home in 1820 and then used as a hospital during the Civil War. We are glad you appreciated the charm of the Rhett House Inn and the amenities we offer. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your have a chance to visit Beaufort.

Our stay at the Rhett House was perfect. The highlight was going on a bike ride through Beaufort; we took both suggested routes that they recommended. We were hesitant to book at first because of the price, but it is worth every single penny. By far our favorite part of our trip to the South.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a private balcony entrance.
